Happy 8 month birthday Taft!

My sweet boy is 8 months old today! Here are a few of his achievements and favorites:

-Walking along furniture

-can stand without holding onto anything for about 4 seconds

-LOVES bathtime

-HATES getting dressed (just like his brother!)

-climbs the stairs (don’t worry... we have a gate!)

-loves having his picture taken

-LOVES LOVES LOVES to clap and bounce... at the same time (this makes him fall over, it’s hilarious!)

-has 8 teeth!

-chews like a puppy


I figure I better report on thanksgiving quickly before Christmas arrives! We had an awesome Thanksgiving with the Smith family. I felt like a real mother/wife this year because I contributed three of my own dishes to the meal and worked in the kitchen all the way until the meal was ready! This girl is growing up! For dessert I made this yummy masterpiece... it was my first experiment!

The boys had a blast playing with their cousins. They were so good, Tyler managed to squeeze in a short nap while they were playing and I was chatting. It was so nice to spend a day with my family, working with my sisters and mom to create a beautiful meal. This Thanksgiving was my favorite yet. I guess I’m just getting older and more sentimental or something! I can’t wait till next year!
